, everything we know from massachusetts is we will get those people. rich: november 30 is the deadline. a number of democrats in the senate more republican or conservative states pushing the administration. he better get on and fix this as soon as possible. dagen: calling him on the phone saying could you have picked a better phrase? >> it happens to all of us. dagen: what, honesty? rich: exactly. connell: you heard him talk about massachusetts, or referring to it. mitt romney had comments on the whole fiasco. let's watch that. >> you have to tell the american people the truth and when you told the american people that you could keep thei your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, he said that time and again, he wasn't telling the truth. i think that fundamental dishonesty has really put in peril the whole foundation of his second term. dagen: art laffer is here under president ronald reagan. from a political standpoint, these people that governor romney was referring to less than 5% of the population, it could possibly be they won't sway an election. >> i think it will tur
on "meet the press." he talked about how the federal law differs from the one he enacted in massachusetts when he was governor and the potential impact he thinks the problems could have on the rest of president obama's term. state should be able through the laboratory of democracy model to put in place the plan that works best for them and if they adopt the massachusetts plan, terrific. if they adopt a different plan, that's fine. recognize that massachusetts teaches some important lessons some states are not going to follow. one lesson is health insurance is more expensive in massachusetts than anywhere else in the country. montana is notng necessarily going to want to adopt. you will see as a result of obamacare premiums going up dramatically across the country and going back to the key thing the president is trying to get away from is he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. whether you like the model of obamacare or not, the fact the president sold on a basis that was not true has undermined the second term. i think it is rotting it away and the only
the affordable care act rollout to the roll out of mitt romney' health care plan in massachusetts. however, mitt romney said in the last hour or so, those comparisons are no good. >> the key, i think, that has really undermined the president's credibility in the hearts of the american people is that he wept out as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of obama care over the last several years saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case. he could know it by looking at massachusetts and seeing people there lost insurance. >> but the so-called architect of obama care, dr. emanuel, is now defending the president's repeated insistence that americans would be able to keep their health plans if they wanted to. he's now blaming insurance companies for acting unexpectedly and dropping plans that do not comply with new mandatory minimum standards. >> passed the law, we said any plan that existed before the date the law was passed would be grandfathered in unless lots of changes were mad
